Letter: What’s next after gay marriage?

To the Editor:

Is traditional marriage a thing of the past? You betcha.

We disagree on a lot of things we talk about over coffee, but there is one thing lately we’re all on the same page with and that’s what the Supreme Court ruling will be on same-sex marriage and on the review of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, a 1996 law defining marriage as solely an opposite-sex union.

My Monday morning coffee buddies Frank and Tony said it the best: “They are gonna open up a big can of worms.” And the rest of us old gray-heads nodded and wondered “what’s next?”.

No question and we’re all in agreement. With the court ruling and the same-sex marriage movement showing unprecedented momentum, traditional marriage is out the door.

Watch out, because now “anything goes.”
